This summer the 2016 Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival is continuing its celebration of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death with numerous theatrical events.
Shakespearean actors of all ages from throughout the Michiana area will take the Washington Hall stage for performances of “ShakeScenes” at 2 p.m. July 16 (Saturday) and July 17 (Sunday). A unique collection of scenes inspired by the works of Shakespeare and performed by community members and area school students, “ShakeScenes” will include performances by members of the Robinson Community Learning Center Shakespeare Company, the Good Shepherd Shakes of the Good Shepherd Montessori School, and the Harter Heights Players. Admission to “ShakeScenes” is free with tickets which may be obtained on line here.
The Shakespeare Festival’s exploration of “Shakespeare’s Last Words” will include performances of the two last plays written by the Bard.
